Mark Klett, Photography, and the Reinvention of Landscape

Author: William L. Fox

Publisher: UNM Press

ISBN: 9780826322197

Category: Photography

Page: 309

View: 1251

Mark Klett has been photographing the American West for nearly twenty-five years. He directed the Rephotographic Survey Project in the late 1970s, which located and rephotographed the sites of images made by William Henry Jackson, Timothy O'Sullivan, and other photographers surveying the West in the late nineteenth century. Klett has also published several books of his own work. Using his travels in the Nevada desert with Mark Klett and his current rephotographic team as the starting point, William Fox offers here an examination of the history of photography in the American West and of Klett's role in documenting the landscape. Like the story of photography itself, this is a multilayered narrative. Part historical overview, part travel journal, part biographical study of Klett,View Finderexplores the evolution of our view of the land from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. Fox looks at the legacy left by the likes of Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Robert Adams. And in focusing on the work of Mark Klett in the last quarter century, William Fox reflects upon the meaning of the landscape at the beginning of the millennium. Because Klett's work has been so closely connected to the great photographic surveys of the 1870s, and because he has been so influential to a new generation of photographers, his is the ideal viewpoint from which to measure our changing approach to the American space.

Photographing female nudes is about more than just the body. For Laurie Klein, it is about capturing the feminine spirit. Laurie’s creative medium is nature. The landscape plays as much of a role in her photos as does the model. Laurie's unique way of using infrared photography, and the caring, personal way she captures her subject's innermost emotions becomes a transformational experience for both photographer and client. In this book, Klein details her techniques and her inspirations in creating these unforgettable images. Shooting nudes in nature is complex. The photographer needs to know when to start with the model and arrange nature around them or see something in nature and treat the model as part of the nature. Klein gives many ideas for posing models in relationship to nature and the landscape. She masterfully uses infrared photography to capture the beauty of the surroundings and the female form. Each photo in the book is accompanied by details of the location or setting, camera settings, composition concepts and insight into the idea and execution of the shot. Part of what makes Klein’s photos so unique and vibrant is that she develops a trusting environment that allows the subject to give themselves over completely to a transcendent photographic experience. Out of this usually comes a series of fine art portraits or a substantial book for them to enjoy, share and pass on through the generations. Using the body as a landscape, Klein crafts unique and sometimes abstract images that emphasize the beauty of the female form in different ways. Sometimes the simplicity of the image is the beauty of it. The infrared photography format provides striking contrasts between the skin tones and the natural surroundings. Tips are given for choosing unique locations that can work best for creating artful images like the ones in the book. Being able to improvise and set-up a shoot when discovering a unique setting or lighting scenario can be the key to crafting a stunning portrait. Sometimes the unexpected can occur and a prepared and creative photographer can turn that into a magical moment captured in infrared. Klein is recognized for her signature infrared photography style. This book provides in insight into her creative process.

Photography and Its Violations

Author: John Roberts

Publisher: Columbia University Press

ISBN: 0231538243

Category: Philosophy

Page: 240

View: 5442

Theorists critique photography for "objectifying" its subjects and manipulating appearances for the sake of art. In this bold counterargument, John Roberts recasts photography's violating powers of disclosure and aesthetic technique as part of a complex "social ontology" that exposes the hierarchies, divisions, and exclusions behind appearances. The photographer must "arrive unannounced" and "get in the way of the world," Roberts argues, committing photography to the truth-claims of the spectator over the self-interests and sensitivities of the subject. Yet even though the violating capacity of the photograph results from external power relations, the photographer is still faced with an ethical choice: whether to advance photography's truth-claims on the basis of these powers or to diminish or veil these powers to protect the integrity of the subject. Photography's acts of intrusion and destabilization, then, constantly test the photographer at the point of production, in the darkroom, and at the computer, especially in our 24-hour digital image culture. In this game-changing work, Roberts refunctions photography's place in the world, politically and theoretically restoring its reputation as a truth-producing medium.

Magic Light and the Dynamic Landscape

Take Advantage of Light and Weather to Create Amazing Photographs

Author: Jeanine Leech

Publisher: Amherst Media

ISBN: 1608957306

Category: Photography

Page: 128

It has been said many times that photography is painting with light, or that photography is all about light. For Jeanine Leech, the idea of painting with light is a passion. She uses it as a brush for color, texture, and dimension to create dynamic and expressive images. In this book, Leech details her techniques for finding and using the best light to create breathtaking landscape images. To get that special moment, you are often chasing the light. In landscape photography there are moments of defining light. It can be a single moment that may only last a second when the light is just perfect. These moments don’t happen every day but when they do one frame can tell the story with more visual impact than all the others. The ability to improvise, to stop and get the light when these moments occur randomly, is the difference between producing a standard photo and something that truly stand out. This book provides the basic principles of photography necessary for capturing this magic successfully. Starting with a rundown of the equipment that Leech uses and explaining the core concepts of photography, the book proceeds to detail shooting at different times of day. From the first light at dawn, through midday and onto dusk, Leech provides stunning examples of how each type of light can be used. Each photo in the book is accompanied by the camera settings used to capture it. True magic light is rare. It happens in a fleeting moment, not to be repeated again, lasting only a few minutes or seconds. Its quality is so unique that it changes the color, appearance and ultimately the mood of the subjects it falls upon. Part three of the book focuses on the different types of landscapes. First weather is covered. A photo shoot in the Smoky Mountains shows how attention to detail and setting can make the shot. The light and the weather change in mere seconds. As Leech points out, knowing the basics of photography and how to work your equipment quickly is essential. Each of the stunning photos in the book is a testament to this. After that Leach discusses how she chooses different landscapes. Intimate landscapes can be found anywhere. Sometimes making artistic choices like only focusing on a small portion of a setting provides an image with greater impact. Finally, the book covers the use of polarizer’s, various filters and multiple digital darkroom techniques.
